A Fantastic Margarita

Rating: 4.2 stars
My husband was a bartender for a trendy restaurant when we met. Here's one of his home versions! Garnish with a lime wedge or an orange wedge.

Tequila Sunrise

Rating: 4.53 stars
This pretty drink with layers of orange juice and grenadine is delicious on a hot day. The fact that the ratio of juice to tequila is high makes it a good choice for a brunch cocktail.

Grilled Grapefruit Paloma Cocktail

Rating: 5 stars
Here's a fired up twist on a traditional Mexican cocktail. You'll grill the grapefruit and lime to caramelize the fruit and give the juice a subtle smoky edge. Stir it up with tequila or mescal and top with club soda for a refreshing drink that's perfect all summer long.

Margaritas on the Rocks

Rating: 4.79 stars
This is the best batch of margaritas you'll ever make. Everybody wants the recipe after consuming one of these.

The BEST Raspberry Margarita!

Rating: 4 stars
Delicious raspberry-flavored margarita. This recipe is inspired by one of the big chains that is famous for its margaritas! You'll love this! Be sure to use top-quality tequila and raspberry liqueur for maximum effect. I sometimes like to add a 'floater' of Chambord to top it all off.

Salty Chihuahua

Rating: 4.76 stars
A Salty Chihuahua is a variation on the salty dog, and it's also fun to say.

Top Shelf Sparkling Margarita Jell-O®

Rating: 5 stars
For grown-ups only. This recipe is my closest attempt at duplicating the awesome flavor of a cold margarita. It's sweet, tart, salty, and packs a punch. Garnish each serving with a lime wedge. You seriously only need one of these.

Coconut Margaritas

Rating: 4.14 stars
Setting out to duplicate the coconut margaritas we had in Costa Rica, my first attempt was awful! I surfed the internet for a good recipe with little luck. I then took what I'd learned from my first nasty try and the ideas I picked up online and after about 5 or 6 attempts I came up with this. Enjoy!

Long Island Iced Tea

Rating: 3.79 stars

This is the classic Long Island Iced Tea, containing just a hint of citrus. It is best made with top shelf liquors. Watch out, it is very strong, but tastes very good, so you may not realize all the alcohol you're consuming.
